3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I havent had many scotch ales in my day, but this was a damn good ale. Iíve had Odellís Red Ale and it was really good, so I figured Iíd give the 90 shilling a try. It pours a dark rich mahogany color (just like whiskey) and goes down smooth like any ale should. It has a bit of bitterness to it, but it adds to this particular aleís character.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich amber color with an unstable head. Aromas grain, slight maize and grass. Flavors light toffee, grass and slight grain with a touch of earthiness. Medium to high sweetness (not a fan of as this mostly comes across as a straight lager).

Bottle - Has a light brown tea color with a nice head and generous lacing. The taste is woody and malty and somewhat nutty but it also seems to have some characteristics of a pilsner beer. Ok but Iíve had better.

Dark amber with a frothy tan head. Malty. Caramel and bread crust. Some earthy hops with a mild bitterness. Creamy, medium body. Solid brew, if unexciting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear amber orange, with a near white head thatís fluffy and frothy, leaving rich lacing rings. Aroma: strong aroma of sweet, chewy toffee, caramel, brown sugar, cherries in light syrup, and vanilla. Taste: as the aroma indicates, a little nutty, with fruit notes more prominent as it warms. Finish: lasting sweetness of brown sugar and toffee, with a bit of vanilla and wood to dry it just a tad. Notes: Really nice scotch ale. Sweet, but with a light enough palate that it was easy to drink. On draft at The Hoppy Monk in El Paso, Texas.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
What a let down. Poured a medium garnet with a medium head. Faint nose and even more faint in the mouth. Boring.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a thistle glass, a clear deep reddish copper colour with thin but persistent off-white foam. Nice grainy and caramelly aroma. Same with the flavour plus slight malt sweetness balanced by the gentlest earthy and flowery hop bitterness, bready, nutty, slightly toasty, slightly chocolatey, slightly acidic. Light-medium body, average carbonation, extremely smooth and easy drinking. Complex and tasty. Probably as close as we can get to a fresh, year-round, widely available table-strength Scottish Ale or English Mild type. Exactly my kinda everyday drinker.
